    Do I need to worry about battery temp or just the CPU temp? I have the temp device patch installed and get warnings sometimes when on the touchstone. I'm also overclocking using uberkenal and govnah. CPU temps don't get anywhere near the red zone. 55c from what I understand.
    Anyway I just want to know if I can stop worrying about the battery temp and just let the govnah do it's thing. Lowering processor speed if CPU temps get to high.

    Good question... I would say yes! The CPU temp is suffice. As for as the battery temp warning patch that's by choice. Personally, I don't use it. Uberkernal now carries a high temp monitor that prevent the phone CPU from getting too hot, and then reverse process back to factory default...once the temp goes beyond a certain point.

    What is the max temperature Govnah will allow?

    As of version 1.4.1-87 of UberKernel, once the CPU temperature hits 55C, it will automatically clock itself down to 500MHz in order to cool itself. Once the temperature drops to 50C, it will resume running at whatever speed you've set it at.

    I have uberkernel version 1.4.5-87 and a couple of days ago my cpu reached 72c and i had to manually clock down to 500mhz. The govnah upper left temp reading had flames on it..lol...oh and nothing happen to my pre..

    I had the same thing happen. I was running UberKernel had it plugged in and had my custom 1GHz UserSpace profile setup and in use... The phone did not automatically down clock when i plugged it into the wall and after running a few programs I am working on the CPU temp was 70c. Once i noticed that I manually clocked it down and when it got to 55c I shut it down via command line "since I was already ssh'd in".

    Hot CPU = shorter life span
    Hot battery = potential for thermal runaway

    Please paste the portion of /var/log/messages which covers this period if it happens again. The kernel syslogs whenever it detects an overtemp and when it goes below the unclamp temperature again, so you will be able to tell from the kernel log whether it is working or not.

    I looked through the messages log and there is absolutely nothing in reference to a state change because of the temperature being above the threshold or even dropping below the reference level. Kinda strange, but everything else seems to be working fine otherwise, so I really can't complain.
